Gnome Honest question. Do you think the GNOME project is as healthy today as it was, say, 4 years ago? Benjamin Otte explains that no, it isn't. GNOME lacks developers, goals, mindshare and users. The situation as he describes it, is a lot more dire than I personally thought.

There's a "VirtualBox disk image of Kubuntu 11.04 i386 Desktop, stable version" on
to conduct experiments on it.

I usually employ a copy of it as a virtual machine and it works stably.

I've tried to launch it, move the taskbar/panel to the top of the screen ( following the steps of ), do my usual operations ( but inside of that machine ) and a lot of minutes later, it hasn't crashed and continues working while I keep on doing what I had to do.

If you have any doubt, on this thread you can make questions.

About it, there is a README.txt on

Using a virtual machine, we avoid the problems of drivers that need development, driver developments that need funding, companies that hide details of their hardware and so it hinders driver developments, etc.
